Modest Mondays - 2010 Mulderbosch Rosé

When it's summertime, and the living is easy, I, for one, reach for a thirst quenching, quaffable rosé. Now, rosés have long since shaken off the unfortunate "sweet, bad wine" stigma that crappy white zinfandel bestowed upon them, so much so that there may even be somewhat of a backlash: they have become the wine hipsters' bottle de riguer. But that doesn't make them any less enticing to me. They're kick ass summertime wines, they don't break the bank, and they tend to please even people who claim to "only" like white or red wines.

The Mulderbosch Rosé is somewhat unique in two respects: it's from South Africa, and it's made from Cabernet Sauvignon (which is kinda rare for rosés).  It's a delicious wine, dry with a lot of fragrant berry and rose on the nose, wonderful strawberry and spice with alluring, quenching acidity on the palate, and a subtley minerally finish, and goddamn it, it's $10! I buy it from the Wine Mine, where I think I've even seen it for $9.
